This one just cracked me up! One of my son's favorite t-shirts says "I know the voices aren't real but they have real good ideas!" You'd have to know my son to really appreciate the sentiment. So I made this card for my sister, 3 total, and the inside says "Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with a few nuts! Thinking of you on your birthday!" She loved all three of them. I've entered this card into two challenges. The first I've never been to before it is Drunken Stampers. The challenge was to use scraps, wonderful! The background paper I had brayered two years ago and never used I didn't like the look of it. I added the sanded embossed background to it and love it. I keep a bag that's full of paper scraps next to my desk and the smaller yellow paper came from there. The second challenge is Secret Crafter Saturday challenge and it was to use metal. The brad and curly cue are both metal.
Stamps: Bugaboo stamps Stella and voices, Stampin up Sanded background
Paper: Summer sun, glossy white(brayered background), whisper white
Ink: craft and classic elegant eggplant, basic black
Other: prisma markers, curly cue, brad, ribbon, clear embossing powder, spellbinders label 4, crystal effects


  1. Cute and funny! I love the background! Good going on so many challenges in one card.

  2. So funny! Thanks for playing along with us this week at the Drunken Stampers!

  3. Totally in love with this! I need those stamps!!! Thanks a bunch for joining the Drunken Stampers this week-- it's great to see you, and I hope you'll come back for more fun next week!

  4. Judging the way most of us carry on about stamps and paper and glitter ... I think we all resemble your sentiment ... which of course makes it PERFECT!

  5. OK, I think this is the funniest one yet, I giggle everytime I look at it. Love, just love your background. You do the nicest layouts...
